World History

Wednesday, June 30, 1954. :   Millions of people in America, Europe and Asia witness a total eclipse of the sun.

     An eclipse of the sun, or solar eclipse, happens when the moon is between the Earth and sun, causing the moon to cast a shadow on the surface of the Earth. This phenomenon only occurs during the New Moon. The 30 June 1954 total eclipse of the sun, in which the moon cast its shadow over three continents, was first witnessed in Nebraska, in the USA. The shadow then moved across the North American continent and the Atlantic Ocean at 2,897 kilometres per hour. The phenomenon was seen in Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. It was observed by many that when the sun was totally eclipsed by the moon, the skies turned dark briefly, the temperature dropped and birds returned to their nests.

In those days, after God's light had shone on you, you suffered many things, yet were not defeated by the struggle.

If you are in a difficult situation and have been trusting God for an answer, you will find it.
